Indoor and outdoor, connect with Mother Nature in a non-resisting way. The perception of the user resembles walking through a bamboo forest, which enhancing the human experience.

The materials used are all native species from Taiwan, Moso bamboo and Makino Bamboo from Nantou and Chiayi is our first choice. Comparing with the space scale performance of traditional installation and bamboo art, they fully express the tenacity and constitutive property of bamboo in design. By mixing constructional dimension and weaving technics, it creates a timeless space that reflects consistency.

At the time of making architecture and building construction, we set for the coming days. “Bamboo Pavilion” is a metaphor of architecture’s footprint, like a seed has been spread and grow, symbolizing our hope and dream of future- offering a more habitable environment to our next generation.
